The main functions of the Wendell Website Committee

  • Provide the functions of a webmaster, that is to insure that the Wendell website is functioning smoothly.
  • Provide the first level of "in house" technical support.
  • Provide help and assistance to town departments, boards, committees, and commissions with issues related to publishing content on the website.
  • Provide helpful resources for website publishers.

The committee members will be available on an as needed basis to town government officials. Many of the committee members have administrator privileges and can provide assistance with "back-end" website tasks, such as creating or editing modules, adding or configuring plugins, elevating user privileges, creating new sections, categories, menus or menu items (pages).

There is an on-line help page for Wendell website publishers.

Under Construction!

You'll see that the look of the site has changed.  This reflects an underlying upgrade from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 3.9.  There are a number of tasks yet to be completed as part of this upgrade, most significantly the user management function and the template (the "look" of the site).  So have no fear - if you think it looks ugly now, just wait.  I'm still working on it.  As of this writing the calendar and photo album also do not work.
